Faculty Development

In just one year, transform your teaching, research, or service.

The faculty development workshops have been a great way to network, get translatable ideas for my own curriculum, and develop my own ideas for infusing the entrepreneurial mindset into my teaching and scholarship.

Great faculty development paths inspire great careers. As a faculty member committed to lifelong learning, you are probably eager to add abilities, increase your effectiveness, and amplify your impact on your community, your career, your students, and your institution. 

Our faculty development program delivers actionable, adaptable strategies and resources that empower you to create long-lasting value with the entrepreneurial mindset (EM). You’ll receive expert facilitation and guidance in your workshop while collaborating with faculty from across the nation. Over the span of a year, you'll then work to bring a project to life on your campus with input and guidance from coaches and fellow participants. Let's get started!
